Get Ready for Our Annual Holiday Party/Pot-luck this Friday, Dec. 9

This Friday, December 9th at 12:00 p.m. (noon) is our Annual Holiday Party and Pot-luck at the Mount Clemens Public Library. It is a joint meeting of the Macomb County Genealogy Group Friday group and the Let's Talk...Genealogy Wednesday group.

Bring a dish (home-made or store-bought) to share and come have some fun. (Remember this meeting starts at noon rather than our usual 1 p.m. start time.)

Please email Ann at the MCGG email (see our contact page) if you plan on attending so we know approximately how many tables to set up. But if you don't know until the last moment, come anyway.

Again this year, just for fun, we are going to have a White Elephant Auction. Look around your house and if you find something that you don't want (but someone else might) wrap it up and bring it. Oh, and bring a few dollars so you can bid on an "elephant" and raise some money.


This year we are playing a guessing game. Bring a photo of yourself taken between age 5 and 15. Do not put your name on the front. We promise to take good care of all photos which will be returned to you.

See you soon at the Mt. Clemens Public Library!

Black Friday Sale: AncestryDNA $69 Sale

AncestryDNA Kit
From today Friday, Nov. 25, to Monday, Nov. 28, Ancestry.com will be having a sale on its AncestryDNA (autosomal) test. Regularly $99 in the United States, the test will be 30 percent off meaning the sale price will be $69. Taxes and shipping costs are extra and about $9.95 to one address.

Ancestry.com has set up a special sale page for this sale. You will likely see the sale price if you are signed into your Ancestry account, if not try the sale page.

So if you have been waiting for a really good sale this would be the one on this product. According to the Ancestry Insider, the sale price goes up to $89 from Nov. 29 to Dec. 14, which is only 10 percent savings.

In the past we have mentioned that there is also a free shipping coupon code FREESHIPDNA listed at the RetailMeNot website. Please note that sometimes this code works meaning Ancestry lets you stack discounts together and sometimes the code does not meaning Ancestry only allows one discount at a time. It doesn't hurt to see if it works for this sale.

Also, Ancestry.com is having a 20 percent off sale on 6-month US-Discovery Gift Memberships. This is for new subscribers only and not renewals of current subscriptions. Regular cost is $99, sale price is $79. If you don't have a current subscription, you can probably gift one to yourself if needed.
